Gum Disease Treatment at Beech Cottage Dental Surgery in Corbridge

Beech Cottage Dental Practice understands that the best way to treat gum disease is through prevention. A scale and polish will keep your gums healthy by removing the plaque and calculus that has accumulated in the mouth. Regular visits for this treatment ensures a good standard of oral hygiene and will keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy. If you don’t get gum disease treatment at the first sight of symptoms, it can lead to tooth loss. This is one of the reasons why regular dental visits are so important for those who want to keep their teeth for life!

Good oral hygiene and regular brushing can help prevent most cases of gum disease (periodontal disease) from happening in the first place, but if you do notice a problem with your gums it’s best to seek advice from your dentist as soon as possible. When gum disease is treated early, the prognosis is very good in many cases – but the longer it’s left untreated the more likely you are to experience long-term problems such as tooth loss.

What Is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, also known as Periodontal disease is caused by a buildup of bacteria in the gum pockets. This allows the bacteria to multiply and destroy the bone that holds your teeth in place. As the bone is broken down it creates small holes, in which more bacteria can grow and spread. Once this happens your teeth will become loose and may eventually fall out.

The early stages of gum disease are known as gingivitis. Over 90% of people will develop this at some stage in their lives and need gingivitis treatment. This is where the gums become red, swollen and bleed easily especially when brushing.

Gingivitis is a form of gum disease and often a result of poor oral hygiene, although it can be caused by a number of other factors such as hormonal changes and genetics. It is quite common to need to prevent or treat gingivitis.

Gum disease is a widespread, yet undetected condition. If a patient would like to prevent gum disease, they should look into regular dental checkups, floss after every meal and limit their intake of sugary or acidic foods.

How Can I Book Gum Disease Treatment?

The quicker you deal with gum disease, the more likely your teeth will stay in your mouth and not be lost forever. It's never too early or too late to protect yourself from gum disease. So if you haven't already done so, find out if you are at risk and get treated. Luckily the various treatments for gum disease are quite effective and the prognosis good once the condition is under control.
